Informed Sport has been announced as an official sponsor of the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Awards 2020. 

Now in its second year, the ESSNawards attracts sports nutrition brands, companies and individuals from across Europe to celebrate the sector’s expansion and prosperity.

Informed Sport, is a certification and testing programme for sports supplements. It assures athletes that every batch of a product carrying the Informed Sport mark has been tested for substances prohibited in sport, and ensures that products have been manufactured to high quality standards.

Last year, over a hundred attendees, from fifteen different countries across the world, came together to celebrate twelve winners, beating over forty other sports nutrition brands who entered into the awards. This year, the ceremony will take place on Thursday 10th December 2020 Stade de France in Paris.

Adam Carey, chair of ESSNA, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Informed Sport on board as a supporter for the ESSNawards. Informed Sport and LGC reflect the highest of standards that we strive to uphold in the sports nutrition industry here at ESSNA. We are honoured that such a credible and respected organisation within the industry is joining the ESSNawards, the only dedicated awards ceremony for brands and companies in the sports nutrition sector.”

Terence O’Rorke, Informed Sport business development manager, EMEA Asia, said: We are very pleased to be sponsoring the ESSNawards, and collaborating with ESSNA and many of the leading brands from across Europe. We look forward to supporting an event that showcases the very best of the European sports nutrition industry.”

Delivered by the ESSNA – a forum for discussion and a vehicle for action for the sports nutrition sector – the ESSNawards gives brands, organisations and ambassadors in the sports nutrition industry an opportunity to gain recognition for their impressive contributions to the sector.
